I had been smoking for 17 years when a friend gave a spare e-cigarette one day. I agreed to try switching a single cigarette break to a vape break. One break turned into two, and then three..

I haven’t had a single cigarette since I got that first e-cig. 8 months in I feel better than I’ve done in years, and I have no urges to go back to smoking. I now use and enjoy advanced vaping gear, of the kind that the new tobacco directive would not allow. I cincerily hope that the options for people that need help quitting smoking are not lessened from this new directive.
